Sylenth sounds almost exactly like virus, pwm is identical.

:?:

The Virus has PWM (unlike Sylenth1), and, no, it doesn't almost sound exactly as Sylenth1...

I would dump Spire if I had to of the 3. Spire is smooth, it can work but mostly it is a bit too smooth, for my taste anyway.
It's funny, I've owned many Viruses going back almost 20 years (currently have a Polar TI2) and also own Spire (since it was released ) and Sylenth1. For some reason that I can't even explain, I was a very late adopter of Sylenth1. When everybody was singing its praises years ago and it was used on seemingly everybody's house, trance, chillout, etc., tracks, I just didn't get all the hype over it. Then, my main collaborator at the time drank the Sylenth1 Kool-Aid, and starting using it so much that we both found it too inconvenient for me to not own. So, I bought it and, not long after, was thoroughly convinced that it was worth the hype. Now, I'm with you - between the three (i.e., Virus, Sylenth1, Spire), Spire gets the least amount of love here. But, it's still one of my fav soft synths, so it's not going anywhere.

It's not learning, when i hit learn all it does is jump random values of the pitchwheel range...and old projects/presets are all fkd up now, because i don't know on which range they were, even if learning/linking was working...
Just quoting myself here. The problem seems solved for now.

For some reason i didn't have to link the pitchwheel using Sylenth1 in Unify standalone, the pitchwheel was just working as it used to be. After that, i opened the same project where Sylenth1 was giving problems before and low and behold : pitchwheel was working as usual.
Very weird, as i have the vst2 in Unify and vst3 in my project and i didn't have to do any learning (except when i tried before and only the range was randomly jumping, so maybe it catched that anyway).

But who cares, it's working now. :party:
More BPM please

Virus comparisons and complaints about missing PWM are as old as Sylenth itself.

As an M1 Mac user I just rejoice that it works on my system and that Lennard is still maintaining it. Super happy 😃

Some people have acute hearing and can hear differences. It's only nonsense until it is not nonsense.

I wasn't debating. ;) When I see someone make a statement, and there's no indication whatsoever in form of a smiley or something, I take it that the person is serious about what's written.

I also didn't take it as a joke, because, it simply wasn't funny. No offense. ;)
